A Movie – Safety Not Guaranteed 7/9/12

July 9, 2012

When an unusual classified ad, which is the title of this movie, inspires a writer and 2 interns at Seattle magazine. They really needed a hot story and it seemed a perfect start! They discovered a mysterious eccentric guy named Kenneth (Mark Duplass), a paranoid supermarket clerk, who put this ad. He believes the time travel and intends to depart soon. Darius (Audrey Plaza), an intern, was chosen to get close to him, but it turned to be more. They got romantic in cynical and almost unrealistic way. Meantime, Jeff (her boss-Jake Johnson) was seeking his old romance. Also Jeff encourages another intern (Karan Soni), who is naive and nerd, to have  a first experience with a girl. Together they embark on a hilarious, smart, and unexpectedly heartfelt journey. It is a super romantic film with a lot of wit and laugh. I loved it so much (except the ending).
